Web status (Jessie)

With Jessie, we’ve also revised the web status for you. In the following chapter, we will show you everything that’s new.
But we’ll begin with the things we already know.

Let’s go

Apps

To be found in the apps register are some browser applications that you can start from this page. PiCtory is already activated.

  • Click on “Start” to open PiCtory.
  • For other applications, like for example SpiderControl, you first have to start the application service.
  • To do so, go to the “Services” register.

Services

In this register, you will see services available for your applications. To use an application -for example SpiderControl – you first have to activate the respective service here.

  • Click to activate the applications in the choice box before “Enabled”.
  • Click to deactivate the applications in the choice box before “Disabled”.

After every alteration, “changed” will be shown in the respective status box.

  • Click on “Save all” to save the settings. Up to 10 seconds may pass before the change is saved and the status updated.

If the changes have been successfully saved then “…saved” will appear. The settings are then saved permanently.
